What is it? Does every stone need it? Both are valid and commonly asked questions. After working with a company that offers this service for more than two years, I have come to appreciate my customers’ curiosity about this service.
What is it?
To best explain what the layout is we have to start at the time of template. Stone Masters does digital templating. The digital file of your measurements are then brought back to production and uploaded to a computer. Below is what it looks like once uploaded into the computer.
If you opt for the layout service, Stone Masters then takes a picture of your exact slab(s) and uploads them, along with your measurement to another program called Slab Smith. On one side of the screen you fill see your counter pieces, and on the other your slab(s). Production will bring up a suggested layout for you to begin working with. You can choose to accept the suggested layout, or move the pieces around to create your own layout. You can see in the photo below what a completed layout looks like.
